As you probably know end tables are highly desirable pieces of furniture to have in your living room great room or family room. But they usually have a bit of wasted space. Some models may offer a shelf on the bottom but not much else. With nested end tables you gain a lot of extra real estate for entertaining. As more people arrive and more potluck dishes crowd your table you can simply pull out another one of the nesting end tables and use it for the overflow.
An end table is intended to make it easy for people sitting in an armchair to reach their drinks nibbles or books and newspapers without having to bend down over the side of their chair to do so. The same with a coffee table - it should be set at a comfortable height. Your first priority should therefore be the dimensions of your coffee and end tables. A coffee table should ideally be at just above knee height. Your end tables should be level with the arm of the chair or sofa. This will enable you to each to the side and pick up a drink with very little effort. Too high or too low and it is more easy to spill even to drop your cup or glass.
One thing is certain. Nested tables that can be used as end tables offer homeowners a very flexible way to offer more bang for their buck in terms of table space without making the room look too crowded. End tables are often an afterthought in a living room or great room. Often so much time goes into making decisions about the upholstered pieces the coffee table the lamps and the paint that it becomes an "oh and we also need some end tables" type of decision.
It`s amazing how a little thing like the material used to make a piece of furniture can change its entire character. This is certainly true with upholstered furnishings. The difference between a fabric sofa and one made of fine leather is like night and day. It`s not that one is inferior to the other. Rather it creates a different look to a room all because a certain material was chosen.
